The people were really wonderful, went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable. The hotel is ideally located. The only downside is that there is a club nearby that blasts music till about 12 at night.

We visit this place early August of 2015. We booked the room a day in advanced by tripadviser. We arrived after a short search where the hotel would be, the taxi-driver didn't knew this place. But when we arrived we had to wait for other guest by the meaning they had a change to choose a room and we would... More

This hotel is centrally located but also noisy especially if you get a room on the ground floor. You can hear receptionist talking on the phone, pedestrians walking by your window as if they were in the same room. The price is steep at 60 USD per room, rooms rather dirty, breakfast uninspired. We were made to pay upfront for... More

This was a nice hotel with friendly people and great food. The rooms were clean and well equipped for the location. We stayed here on our arrival before traveling to Jambiani and for a day on our return. Highly recommend it.

Stone Town is best explored on foot and Zanzibar Stone Town Lodge is conveniently located in the heart of Stone Town. It can be tricky to find it due to the many turns through the narrow pathways but this is an incredibly fun experience with a lot to discover on the way. The rooms are basic but value for the...

A fair hotel, but nowhere near worth the price. Check out your room first. Some rooms are far worse than others. Our first room was infested with mosquitoes, smelled horribly of damp, and had holes in the windows. Second room was manageable.

First night, they have no room but since they want costumers, they asked one of the guest to let me sleep in their room. Anyway, I think the only redeeming factor about this place is the wifi. Price, I found cheaper places with better quality *cough*JamboloungeManchlodge*cough*. Staff, except for one, they are not trustworthy especially the service lady and the... More

This hotel is just renovated and a quiet place to stay. 45 dollars includes the breakfast and a very nice room with airco, shower, toilet and fan. It is in the Centre of Stonetown. Greets from Ad and Helmy from Holland

Reading other reviews makes me wander if we just had a bad room- ours was dark, had a view of a wall, just a shower head in the toilet, so very wet and cramped. Whole place could do with good sweep and mop, esp roof top which was grubby and littered. Very friendly staff especially Zwene (?) who did her... More

This was the most beautiful hotel on the island. The view from our room was outstanding. Wonderful comfortable bed. Huge bathtub which was much appreciated after 10 days on safari. Excellent staff provided exceptional service. Food was excellent. Great pool. Beautiful view of the Indian ocean. fabulous sunsets.
